Throughout our work together you can expect to be treated with unconditional positive regard, openness, and curiosity.
My therapeutic style focuses primarily on strengths and stressors rather than diagnosis and pathology. I will strive to balance your priorities and goals with attainable challenges and validation.
Anti-racist, queer-affirming and neurodiversity-affirming care are of the utmost importance to me as a human and mental health provider.
My approach to therapy is informed by over a decade of experience working with children and families. I am passionate about working with with developmental differences and supporting caregivers in using their relationships with children to foster growth and diminish stress when challenges arise.
My experience includes individual therapy, child and family therapy, play therapy, in-home and community-based therapy, day treatment, school social work, and inclusive early childhood education. I have facilitated a variety of caregiver support groups and enjoy supporting caregivers in building community with one another.
I am passionate about collaborating with other professionals in mental health and related disciplines. When I am not in direct therapy practice, I offer clinical supervision, mental health consultation, and serve as Community Faculty in the University of Minnesota's Master of Social Work Program.
My approach to therapy is rooted in relationship centered care, attachment theory, polyvagal theory, neurodiversity affirmation, and play therapies. I have extensive training in working with Autism Spectrum disorders using the Greenspan Floortime Approach and addressing early developmental stress and trauma using Developmental Repair.
